Practice Spotlight: Dr. Joseph Nelson

"When we first began using MacPractice, the setup and getting up and running was really simple. The office was using a different software at the time, but the conversion process from our existing practice management software to MacPractice was completely seamless. We were up and running in no time."

Dr. Joseph Nelson, Pure Dental

Simplicity in implementation

When Dr. Nelson took over his practice 3.5 years ago, the previous owner had used a variety of paper, film, and an older software system. There were many records in many places. There were duplicate patient charts in thick folders, along with everything from EOBs to film x-rays. Converting this information into his MacPractice software allowed Dr. Nelson and his staff to organize all practice and patient information in one place, not to mention get rid of many filing cabinets.

The previous office made appointments using a traditional paper appointment book and one staff member was devoted to setting up recall appointments and calling patients for an appointment reminder. After switching to MacPractice, the Pure Dental team was able to create appointments directly in the MacPractice Schedule, using the same system that records patients’ demographic, clinical, and insurance information. Once the office began using automated reminders (SMS, email, and even phone calls), Dr. Nelson was able to reallocate the staff member to focus on bigger tasks.

A better patient experience with MacPractice

"Patients are really impressed when they come in and they see that we have Macs everywhere. From the moment they arrive and see the iPads and the Macs in every room, they can tell that we are a very technologically advanced practice."

Dr. Joseph Nelson, Pure Dental

In an increasingly digital world, patients notice dental practices that use innovative, high quality technology. MacPractice allows you to run software natively on Mac computers, taking advantage of the elegant aesthetics and rich features Mac OS X has to offer. Beyond aesthetics, MacPractice is truly designed to enhance patient care through robust clinical features.

Dr. Nelson found that the patient care he was able to provide improved once it was able to become his main focus. MacPractice has many features that allow him to focus on each patient encounter. With MacPractice’s Clinical view, he is able to quickly add allergies, blood pressure, other vitals, and more, then view the patient information alongside recommended value charts. Clinical view also offers a quick look at a patient’s clinical history, including past perio and restorative charts. Better organization of relevant clinical information and streamlined tools to capture new clinical data allow providers to focus on patients, instead of software.

Securely mobilize patient information

"The integration of iPads with MacPractice software has been fantastic for our practice. Patients love being able to look at their x-rays on the iPad while we are going over treatment planning, and they love using it to fill out their new patient paperwork. The fact that it integrates so tightly with the MacPractice software is really a time saving device for us."

Dr. Joseph Nelson, Pure Dental

With MacPractice, you can securely mobilize patient information to create a paperless patient workflow with MacPractice apps for iPad. Once the patient checks in with a few taps on Check In for iPad, the Schedule updates to signal that the patient is waiting. A few more taps on Clipboard for iPad allow a patient to fill out consent and intake forms, including demographic, clinical, and release forms. This information syncs back to your MacPractice database, so there is no need to re-enter it. With MacPractice iEHR for iPad, you can even pull this patient information into the encounter forms for truly streamlined clinical documentation.

MacPractice works the way you do

"There is so much that I love about MacPractice. It is run on Macs, it is easy to use, my staff can pick up the way it works really easily, and patients love it. It is a system that runs smoothly, all the time, and we never have any problems with it."

Dr. Joseph Nelson, Pure Dental

Dental practices love MacPractice because it makes it easy to focus on what truly matters - their patients. MacPractice combines powerful and robust administrative, billing, and clinical features in one application for the ultimate experience in practice productivity. By streamlining workflows efficiently, MacPractice practices are able to see more patients, reduce errors and redundancy, and improve billing and coding accuracy.

"As someone with a passion for technology, the fact that Apple is always innovating and coming out with new and exciting products is really amazing for me as a dentist. I also love the fact that MacPractice is right behind Apple and always developing new ways to integrate all that new technology into my practice so that I can deliver amazing care to my patients. I can’t wait to see what’s next."
